About this website and how you can contribute

The ferns of Sulawesi project aims to produce a checklist of the ferns occurring on the Indonesian Island of Sulawesi.

Although Sulawesi is a part of one of the recognized hot spots of biodiversity, the number of collections of herbaceous plants deposited in international herbaria is low. By bringing together all available information, we aim to extend the knowledge of the fern flora of this island among botanists, conservation biologist and organizations for conservation biology.
